Beautiful even beach with white sand that does not heat up. Great calm water, lots of fish around you, crabs under your feet and birds to look at. Just paradise.

Siesta beach was very nice and well kept. There was not a lot people on the beach at all during the week, but was still a great time.

We fell in love with the powder soft white sand of Siesta key beach. The water was very warm and clear. We actually saw a school of baby sting rays swim by. The beach is clean and beautiful.

soft white crystal sands and warm turquoise waters. Siesta Key Beach is beautiful and not your party scene, either. A laid back peaceful place.

Beautiful clear water and white soft sand. Amazing and wonderful destination. Unfortunately, we traveled during hurricane season and had to leave early. All the businesses boarded up and prepared for the hurricane so we missed out on a few fun places. Returning to this amazing...More
